[Story] create gadget to try out global sort order
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We want to try to come up with an ordered list of all properties to then sort all statements on items by. In order to make it easier to come up with this list we need a gadget. The gadget takes a list of properties and then sorts any item based on this list. The list should be stored in a wiki page that is editable by the editors.

I remembered seeing something like that, in fact here it is: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Soulkeeper/statementSort.js

Ah great. Then we just need to mangle that a bit to take the order from an editable wiki page.

With https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:ChangeContentModel we can make the page JSON so it's easier to parse.

Is now available for everyone to enable. We should make an announcement. I did some modifications and removed the "toBottom" part.
